Hola, gorgeous people!
My name is Robin – a creator, maker, dreamer, an over user of high fives & the Chief Executive Chandler (fancy name for candle maker).
I have been an artsy-fartsy girl from infancy. Once, when I was about 7 yrs old, I found myself in the terrible spot of a full sketchbook. Did I panic? Nope! Well not for long, I looked around and saw a giant canvas – made of drywall! I dove headlong into this amazing new medium…..and found out later, that drywall does need to be filled in – even if the flamingo looked hella-gorgeous!
I made the commitment to live a creative life in my early 20s and travelled to attend the fine arts school, Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexio. My creativity was over flowing and the sketchbooks were filled to the brim with the dreams of the artist life en Espanol!
However, upon returning to Canada to process student paperwork – I was offered a dream “grown-up” job with Operation Eyesight Universal and thus began a career in development that would take me all over the world! My work took me to Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Thailand, El Salvador and my beloved Mexico.
Over 25 years later, 2 amazing kids, country life and the most supportive husband ever – I am back to living my creative dream!
